Did you know students with disabilities have rights to gain appropriate education?
Students with disabilities, like autistic students, have rights to appropriate education based on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act. My latest special guest can tell you about these acts and the importance of disability rights.
Michael Gilberg is an autistic adult who advocates for students with disabilities' rights in the education system as a special education lawyer. He shares about the importance of getting appropriate education for students with disabilities that meet individual needs and for their own success in life.
